Lawyers Asking Spanish Judge to Drop War Crimes Case

Gaza 2002-Gaza 2009

Some lawyers ( for Israel) in Spain are attempting to get the Judge to drop the case against Israeli war criminals stemming from another murdering spree in Gaza by Israel back in 2002. They are asking him to drop it because "war crimes" are already being investigated "in Israel" ROFLMAO. As if Israel can police itself, Puhleeese! The reason they are worried is that should a conviction take place them those murdering scum criminals can be arrested should they set foot outside of Israel. So let's hope the Spanish judge holds the line against the Layers representing the Jewish lobby in Spain. Story below:

Spanish prosecutors seek to shelve Israel case

MADRID (AFP) — Spanish public prosecutors have asked a Spanish court to shelve a complaint against seven top Israeli military figures over a deadly bombing of Gaza in 2002, a judicial official said Thursday.

The prosecutors justified the move on the grounds that the alleged crimes against humanity in question are already the subject of a legal procedure in Israel, the source said.

Yeah, that's a really GOOD reason to drop the case. Israel a moral country that will offer up a transparent investigation and then punish their own. Anyone who believe that I have some swamp land to sell you.

They argued the complaint should be shelved "to avoid a duplication of proceedings" and to give "preference to the jurisdiction of the state where the facts occurred", the source added.

Tell you what, let them both go forward and we will see which one tells the truth. My money is on Spain!

Judge Fernando Andreu of the National Audience agreed on January 29 to pursue the complaint against former Israeli defence minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer and six senior military officials, sparking strong objections from Israel.

Spain assumes the principle of universal jurisdiction in alleged cases of crimes against humanity, genocide, and terrorism but only if the alleged crimes are not already subject to a legal procedure in the country involved.

It is now up to Andreu to rule on the request to shelve the complaint, which was filed by the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights.

The complaint concerns an Israeli air attack on July 22, 2002 on Gaza City which killed a suspected leader of the Islamist movement Hamas, Salah Shehadeh, along with 14 civilians, mainly children.

Some 150 Palestinians were also wounded, according to the complaint.

Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak had rejected the complaint as "delirious" and said he would do "everything possible to get the investigation dismissed".

See? Israel are baby killers, and Israel has already decided the outcome of any investigation, they are all innocent of any crimes, because, like they keep telling everyone "The Israeli Army is the Most Moral Army in the World" Hey Israel, you loose, we saw you commit genocide in Gaza three months ago. You are an immoral rogue state filled with war mongers and racists who murder children at will.

In addition to Ben-Eliezer, the complaint names the then army chief of staff, General Moshe Yaalon, as well as the then head of the Israeli air force, General Dan Halutz.

It also names General Doron Almog, national security council head Giora Eiland, Michael Herzog, a defence ministry official, and Avi Dichter, director of the Shin Beth intelligence agency.

Andreu's decision to pursue the complaint came just days after Israel's offensive against Hamas in Gaza, which according to Gaza medics killed more than 1,300 Palestenians, nearly a third of them children, and injured 5,300 others.

Well, doesn't this all sound very familiar? Baby killers in Gaza 2002,and baby killers in Gaza 2009, Israel are nothing but war criminals who act with impunity and want to ethnically cleanse Palestine.
